Elon Musk Favors Prison Time Over Firing Unvaccinated Employees

In what might be his longest X post yet, Elon Musk stated he “would rather go to prison than fire good people who didn’t want to be jabbed.”

His statement came as a response to another of his own posts, which called out disinformation campaigns and asserted the COVID-19 vaccine was 100% effective.

Musk’s business tactics at X have garnered international attention with the EU issuing him a warning this week to “comply with sweeping new laws on fake news and Russian propaganda, after X — formerly known as Twitter — was found to have the highest ratio of disinformation posts of all large social media platforms.”

It appears Musk’s followers were eager to show up for his moment of truth. Musk’s reaction sparked a steady stream of support on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

Musk hailed the Supreme Court ruling that put the kibosh on Biden’s executive order mandating the shot, noting, “SpaceX and many other companies would have been forced to fire anyone who refused to get vaccinated! We would not have done so.”

But not everyone was happy with the cherries atop Musk’s post on Tuesday. What began as a clear statement that he supported freedom of choice and was against taking away people’s livelihoods over healthcare decisions, quickly turned sour for some followers as he expressed support of mRNA science. Many people feel immense distrust in the methodology altogether.

Opening the door further into his private life, Musk shared he has been vaccinated for COVID-19 three times, despite having been naturally infected before his first dose. He blamed the need for vaccination on travel requirements.

But fans are bound to question Musk’s decision-making skills on this front since he posted back in January that he suffered serious side effects after the second dose of the vaccine. Musk said he felt like he was dying for a number of days following his receipt of the booster. The obvious question is: Why get a third?

In Tuesday’s post, he said it was his third dose that nearly sent him to the hospital. That has led him to question how many other people are suffering from injuries due to the vaccines or treatments rendered. Wouldn’t we all like to know.
